Compliance Assurance Process Services
Addressing CAP requirements with confidence
In March 2011, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials announced that its Compliance Assurance Process (CAP) program would be expanded and made permanent. Under the six-year-old pilot program, corporate taxpayers have worked with IRS teams to identify and address potential tax issues before the taxpayer files its tax return each year. The IRS cites, as benefits of the program, greater cooperation between corporate taxpayers and the IRS, as well as increased transparency and shorter and narrower post-filing tax examinations.
Expansion of CAP includes a new "pre-CAP" program and a CAP maintenance program. The pre-CAP program offers taxpayers a roadmap of steps required for gaining entry into CAP. The CAP maintenance program aims to reward taxpayers that have participated in CAP for several years, experienced fewer complex issues, as well as demonstrated willingness to work collaboratively and transparently with the IRS.
Participation in the IRS CAP program is a big step for any company. But you don't have to face it alone. To support you in your efforts to make the decision and execute any resulting plan, we offer Deloitte’s CAP Services, as well as the full scope of our Tax Controversy Services.
